The Government of Manitoba won a 2009 Boreal Award for championing the proposed Pimachiowin Aki World Heritage Site, announcing a $10M Trust Fund to support the leading First Nations, and for passing legislation for First Nations land planning and management of their traditional territories.
The Boreal Awards are chosen by a committee of the Boreal Leadership Council. The Council recognizes leadership, innovation, cooperation, and excellence among those who live and work in Canada’s Boreal Forest region. CPAWS Manitoba nominated the province for the award.
